The Arvada Police are investigating a series of burglaries in the vicinity of 64th Avenue and Eldridge Street.
The suspect entered through an unlocked window or door. In each case, the victims were home, sleeping and unaware their houses had been burglarized until they awoke.
"It's a good reminder for residents to close and lock the doors and windows to their homes," said Detective Mark Mantych of the Arvada Police. "Residents should also roll up car windows, lock all car doors and be sure to remove all valuables.
"If you make your property and vehicle difficult to access and make valuables difficult to find, you decrease your chances of becoming a victim."
Anyone with information related to these burglaries should contact Detective Mantych at 720.898.6725.
For residents who want to know other ways to protect their home and properties, there is a free Crime Prevention Class on Tuesday, October 2 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Arvada City Hall, 8101 Ralston Road. For more information or to RSVP for the class, call 720.898.6883.
